A man is being sought by police in connection with an incident where two men were stabbed in a Harold Wood pub, late Friday evening.

Officers were called by the London Ambulance Service at 10.42pm to reports of an assault at the Shepherd and Dog pub in Shepherds Hill, Harold Wood.

Two men were treated for facial and stab wounds to the chest and taken to an east London hospital where they remain in a stable condition.

Acting detective sergeant Jay King said: “We are very keen to speak with the individual pictured and would encourage anyone who recognises him to contact us immediately.

“Both victims sustained a number of stab wounds and it was only by pure chance that they were not more seriously injured or killed.
